This blog would have been very different if it was written a year ago. God has done a lot of positive changes in my life lately; specifically the past year. I thought I am something but He humbled me with great gentleness to show me that I’m nothing. He didn’t strike me with sickness or trial but He put amazing people in my life. The missionaries!
Someone gave me a book about the life of George Muller (a missionary in the 19th century) …this book made me decide to go to a mission trip to Africa last November. Over there I saw missionaries in action. I came back with great zeal and read more about more missionaries: Sadhu Sunder Singh, Amy Carmichael, Correy Ten Boom, Lillian Trasher and the best of them all Brother Yun (the heavenly man) from China. These people shared their faith through their blood …they made me feel that I’m worldly, slothful, spoiled and cold spiritually! You can’t read their lives and continue to live the same way.
If you are like me (one year ago) living in your comfort zone, think that you are ok, not doing any thing extraordinary for God or even stagnant in you spiritual life I would encourage you to read their bios.
Thanks be to our gracious Lord who is long suffering and compassionate … He is so patient with us until we come back to our senses.
